Emma Goldman

Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.”

“What a preposterous notion! What incentive to slavery, inactivity, and parasitism! . . . Just because humanity has been meek, the earth has been stolen from it.

“Meekness has been the whip with which capitalism and governments have forced man into dependency, into his slave position. The most faithful servants of the State, of wealth, of special privilege, could not preach a more convenient gospel than did Christ, the ‘redeemer’ of the people.”

–Emma Goldman, “The Failure of Christianity”
